Social distancing? Self (or otherwise) quarantined? There is now a live, round-the-clock streaming view of the cherry trees at the National Mall Tidal Basin coinciding with the start of spring and peak bloom.
The Trust for the National Mall and The National Cherry Blossom Festival just announced a new #BloomCam to allow people to virtually monitor DC’s famous budding cherry blossom trees along the Tidal Basin in real time as they bloom.
#BloomCam offers a view from the 1331’s Iconic Residential Views. Check it out here.
“Once the National Cherry Blossom Festival was canceled, we immediately began thinking creatively about virtual ways to allow the more than 1.5 million people who typically visit this time of year to continue to celebrate and support the cherry blossoms – one of the most popular and beloved sites in Washington, D.C.,” Catherine Townsend, President & CEO of the Trust for the National Mall explains.
“It is our goal to encourage collective sharing of the cherry blossoms, albeit from our homes, as
symbols of hope, renewal, and friendship during this time, while helping to build a wider community of support for the long-term care and maintenance of these beloved natural treasures on the National Mall.”
